This isn't meant to be a claim about literally all MMA fans or anything-- I'm a fan myself, albeit a casual one-- but why do I see so many self-proclaimed MMA fans (and sometimes practitioners) getting super fucking salty about kung fu movies and so on? They're fictional. They're pretend. It's okay for them not to be super realistic.

I understand getting annoyed when people see wire-fu shit and expect a real fight to be like that, but that's kind of the fault of people who take a movie that exists for entertainment to be 100% true, isn't it?

Also, this scene won awards for how well it drew on actual MMA techniques but choreographed them into an exciting fight scene for the big screen:

I laugh that people think that that movies are real.

Doonie Yen and Sammo Hung kind of started that trend with their thriller S.P.L., they pulled out some MMA moves along with their usual wing chun and Jeet Kune Do styles.

They're two of the last filmmakers in Hong Kong who actually know their shit. Everything else is just model/actress/whatevers on wires with a lot of CGI who probably trained for a week.

Donnie, Sammo, Colin Chou, Yuen Biao, Wu Jing, there aren't many of the real martial artists left in Honkers.

Check this one out, with Donnie.

I haven't seen people get mad about stuff like that but then again I try not to associate with people who take life too seriously or can't take a joke, I've been doing MMA for years and I don't mind that people make fake fights in movies, they look cool and are entertaining, it's like watching Lord of the rings, it's just fantasy if I want to see a real fight I can watch UFC or ask another black belt at my dojo for a spar, that being said I can totally see some gymcel getting all mad about something like that
